This is made with horse gram sprout and brinjal (egg plant).If you can’t find sprouts it’s

best to soak the gram overnight .

This is a good side dish for rice or pulaos.Tangy and keeps your taste buds active.

Healthy and fat burning lentil.

Incuding horsegram at least once or twice a week is a healthy practice to keep your

cholesterol levels stable.I have posted kollu recipes before so do check them too.
